A groundbreaking examination of the transformational power of affect and a technique for harnessing it in the psychotherapeutic setting The first model of accelerated psychodynamic therapy to make the theoretical why as important as the formula for how, Fosha's original technique for catalyzing change mandates explicit empathy and radical engagement by the therapist to elicit and harness the patient's own healing affects. Its wide-open window on contemporary relational and attachment theory ushers in a safe, emotionally intense, experience-based pathway for processing previously unbearable feelings. This is a rich fusion of intellectual rigor, clinical passion, and practical moment-by-moment interventions.

From their accounts we learn how they were transformed, and how they came to accept their illnesses as gifts.

His is a story of the evolutionary effect which suffering can have on the human psyche when it is a suffering which is accepted as an opportunity for spiritual awakening.

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: At the beginning of the 21st century Internet-based B2B e-Business is the ultimate driving force and transforming power in traditional business - the Old-Economy - and its continuous evolution toward a truly networked and globalized economic system. This paper develops a holistic definition and classification of e-Business in general and B2B e-Business in particular. It provides concepts to describe and categorise the development of B2B e-Business, the emerging opportunities of B2B e-Business, and how B2B e-Business shapes and transforms the goals, strategies, structures and processes of a traditional firm in the Old-Economy. The paper concludes with a discussion of selected strategic issues of B2B e-Business. The goal is to show that B2B e-Business means the advent of the next generation of business, just as the industrialisation did 200 years ago.

Responding to the global shift from the Information Age to the Intuition Age, Penny Peirce, a respected leader in the intuition development movement, offers effective, easy-to-follow guidance to help you develop the power of perception and imagination to live effortlessly and joyfully in this new age. With a growing holistic view of the world and a greater awareness of personal and collective energy, our level of perception is transforming from something singular—the physical form—to a greatly expanded awareness that includes intuition, past and present, right and left brain, and heart and body. As our perceptive ability evolves, we must relearn the principles of how we live, create, and grow in order to be successful in the rapidly transforming reality of the Intuition Age. Written with clarity, insight, and humor, Leap of Perception is a comprehensive guide that shows us how to adapt to an expanding paradigm of perception. You will learn to materialize the situations you want, resolve conflict in relationships, expand your creativity, reduce exhaustion and anxiety from multitasking, ease fear caused by the transformation process, and develop new skills like telepathy, clairvoyance, applied empathy, rapid healing, and more. Building on her first two books, The Intuitive Way: The Definitive Guide to Increasing your Awareness and Frequency: the Power of Personal Vibration, author Penny Peirce once again translates a powerful and complex concept into an effective life practice that is accessible to everyone.

Addressing the art and science of psychodynamic treatment, Nancy McWilliams distills the essential principles of clinical practice, including effective listening and talking; transference and countertransference; emotional safety; and an empathic, attuned attitude toward the patient. The book describes the values, assumptions, and clinical and research findings that guide the psychoanalytic enterprise, and shows how to integrate elements of other theoretical perspectives. It discusses the phases of treatment and covers such neglected topics as educating the client about the therapeutic process, handling complex challenges to boundaries, and attending to self-care. Presenting complex information in personal, nontechnical language enriched by in-depth clinical vignettes, this is an essential psychoanalytic work and training text for therapists.

Attachment Focused Family Therapy

Over fifty years ago, John Bowlby and Mary Ainsworth’s research on the developmental psychology of children formed the basic tenets of attachment theory. And for years, following these tenets, the theory’s focus has been on how children develop vis-a-vis the attachments—whether secure or insecure—they form with their caregivers. In the therapy room, this has meant working with individuals one-on-one, with the therapist assuming the role of the attachment figure in order to provide a secure base for treating clients’ problems that arose from troubled interpersonal relationships in childhood. Here, Daniel A. Hughes, an eminent clinician and attachment specialist, is the first to expand this traditional model, applying attachment theory to a family therapy setting. Drawing on more than 20 years of clinical experience, Hughes presents his comprehensive, effective, and accessible treatment model for working with all members of a family—not simply the individual in question—to recognize, resolve, and heal personal and family problems using principles from theories of attachment and intersubjectivity. Beginning with an overview of attachment and intersubjectivity—the twin theories from which he forms his treatment plan—Hughes carefully outlines, chapter by chapter, the core principles and strategies of his family-based approach. He elaborates on the need to develop and maintain PACE (playfulness, acceptance, curiosity, and empathy)—the central therapeutic stance of attachment-focused family therapy—and supplies tips and sample dialogues for implementing this position. The importance of fostering affective/reflective (a/r) dialogue is covered in detail, as well as helping families to manage shame, understand and embrace the break-and-repair cycle of their interactions, and explore and resolve childhood trauma. Also discussed are the more procedural issues of how to incorporate parents into therapeutic conversations, when and how to question them on their own attachment histories, and how to “be” with children. Grounded in the fundamental principle of parents facilitating the healthy emotional development of their children, Attachment-Focused Family Therapy is the first book of its kind to offer therapists a complete manual for using attachment therapy with families. Extensive case studies, vignettes, and sample dialogues throughout clearly demonstrate how Hughes’s model plays out in the therapy room. By showing therapists how to create a bond of psychological safety and intersubjective discovery with parents and caregivers, Hughes reveals how they, in turn, can bring about similar experiences of safety and discovery for their children.

How can an abstract sequence of sounds so intensely express emotional states? How does music elicit or arouse our emotions? What happens at the physiological and neural level when we listen to music? How do composers and performers practically manage the expressive powers of music? How have societies sought to harness the powers of music for social or therapeutic purposes? In the past ten years, research into the topic of music and emotion has flourished. In addition, the relationship between the two has become of interest to a broad range of disciplines in both the sciences and humanities. The Emotional Power of Music is a multidisciplinary volume exploring the relationship between music and emotion. Bringing together contributions from psychologists, neuroscientists, musicologists, musicians, and philosophers, the volume presents both theoretical perspectives and in-depth explorations of particular musical works, as well as first-hand reports from music performers and composers. In the first section of the book, the authors consider the expression of emotion within music, through both performance and composing. The second section explores how music can stimulate the emotions, considering the psychological and neurological mechanisms that underlie music listening. The third section explores how different societes have sought to manage and manipulate the power of music. The book is valuable for those in the fields of music psychology and music education, as well as philosophy and musicology

H. G. Wells's first and fourth novels, The Time Machine and The War of the Worlds, have together largely created the science fiction genre. The centennial of the initial publication of The War of the Worlds was the focus of the 19th International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts, and this volume includes selected essays from that conference. The first section of the book offers fresh interpretations of The War of the Worlds, while the second looks at Wells's other contributions and his shaping influence on science fiction and fantasy. The third includes papers on the art of noted science fiction writer Peter Straub, while the fourth explores a diverse range of topics related to the fantastic.
